Muslim women in Tunisia are allowed to marry Non-Muslim Men

According to Islamic law, Muslim men can marry women who are non-Muslim. The only condition is that the woman is belonging to a religion on whom Allah has revealed a book i.e. she should be either Christian or a Jew. However Muslim females cannot marry non-Muslim men even if the man belongs to these religions.

Islamic law has been recognized by many Islamic states or states with a Muslim majority. Since 1973, most of the Muslim majority countries passed a law that prohibited Muslim females from marrying non-Muslim men.

Tunisia is a North African Arab nation is a country that has now moved towards gaining gender equality. Movements for women rights in Tunisia have been successfully taking place over recent months. The movements are aimed at providing women with equal rights per men.

Tunisia has allowed Muslim females to marry non-Muslim males. The country is celebrating a victory for abolishing the law of 1973 that prohibited Muslim females from marrying Non-Muslims.

So now Tunisian Muslim women can marry a non-Muslim who does not convert to Islam. The movement of gender equality claims that if Muslim men can marry non-Muslim females so why not Muslim women can marry a Non-Muslim man?

Tunisia is now motivated to amend the inheritance law. According to Islamic rule, a girl has a half share in inheritance compared to her brothers. The state finds this law as a right violation and is keen to amend it as well.
